What is a Certificate of Deposit?
A Certificate of Deposit (CD) is a type of savings option that is guaranteed to offer a fixed rate for a fixed term. A term is the length of time you agree to let your money remain in the account, untouched. Once the 6-month to 5-year term has ended, you can withdraw your funds on the maturity date.
If you withdraw your funds before the maturity date, you may be assessed an early withdrawal penalty. Be sure to check the terms and conditions to know if this applies to you.
CDs are a great way to invest your savings, typically at a higher rate than a basic savings account, without any additional risk.
